Join us for one of the the Rail Trails Tourism Strategy Workshops

Thank you all for your consideration and patience as we worked to reschedule the Thompson Okanagan Regional Rail Trails Tourism Strategy Workshops.

Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) in association with Destination BC, Recreation Sites and Trails BC, Trails BC, British Columbia Cycling Coalition and Cyclo Touring BC Program, is pleased to announce workshop dates for the Thompson Okanagan Regional Rail Trails Tourism Strategy.

This Strategy, scheduled to be completed by November of 2015, will assist our regional rail trail network in creating an internationally export ready tourism product and will further advance the goals presented in the 10-year Regional Tourism Strategy Embracing Our Potential (

The centerpiece of this trails strategy will be the Kettle Valley / Columbia and Western Railway rail trails routes that form the basis of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) through the Thompson Okanagan region.

This process is being led by TOTA with support by Destination British Columbia (DBC).
